Landings are a woefully underused space in the modern home, often treated as a space to quickly pass by, not one to spend time in. Here are 6 of our favourite uses of this undervalued extra room…
1, All about the view
If you’re lucky enough to have a backdrop as stunning as this one then surely you’ll want to make the most of it! Floor to ceiling windows at the top of the staircase transform an otherwise simple space into one worth shouting about – and the extra sunlight is not to be sniffed at
2, Colour pop
These owners wanted to draw attention to their small but perfectly formed landing without breaking the lovely neutral tones of the rest of the house. This patterned chaise-lounge gives a cheeky wink to the Georgian properties of the home, while adding just the right amount of red-hot colour.
3, Industrial chic
Take some inspo from your favourite edgy gallery and turn your landing into a post-modern masterpiece. We love the combination of the dramatic prints with neon pink lighting and exposed radiator here – it may not be a place you’ll want to sit down with a cup of tea, but it definitely makes a statement!
4, Double sized
This home make the most of their loft-style home, creating a large landing that overlooks the living room. Perfect for a mini gallery space or an extra seating area, this landing appears to increase the height of the room as well as effectively adding another (albeit open)
5, Cosy corner
Perfect for a cottage-esque house, these owners went for full comfort and cute factor with this landing. By adding some curtains, a bright rug and two tempting armchairs this otherwise ignored space is transformed into the ideal spot for a cup of tea and a book!
6, Simple but effective
Video Of The Week
As this home shows, you don’t have to do a lot to your landing to make it stand out. We love the statement banisters and complementary artwork and lampshade. The curtainless high window adds light and a lovely view before you head back to the world downstairs.
